Bob and I actually made fun of how short a time it takes to devolve into nonsense.

This is why my number system for arguments makes sense.

Okay, that does it! 18! (At first I was going to say "23" but I decided not to be too offensive.)

Nonsense is a good thing. Posting long obscure articles for everybody else to read that come from a biased source will not change anyone's mind.

The impression I get living abroad is that there has been a turn toward nastiness in American political life.

I put it down to the absence of those delightful, life affirming, Kinder Eggs in the U.S. of A.

Toddlers choke on them. They die. Adults don't know that because they're labelled for kids and have kid toys in them. The kinder eggs people know that, yet they keep making them. An example of over-governmented actions saving lives. Sometimes it's needed. If it weren't for government banning these things, the manufacturers, judging the future from the past, would be selling choking toys and slipping melamine in everything we eat and getting away with it.

Sometimes what seems absurd really isn't.

Kinder Eggs are sold all around the world, except in the U.S., and apparently there have been about 7 deaths from them in 20 years. So if the population of the world is about 7 billion, and we exclude the population of the U.S., the risk of death from a Kinder Egg is ... well ... any interested reader can do the math. It's infinitesimal (really, really, really small).

Apparently the top items in choking deaths in the U.S. are:

Hot dogs
Candies
Nuts
Grapes
Meat
Raw carrots
Cookies and biscuits
Raw apples
Popcorn
Crunchy peanut butter

Those kill more children in the U.S. every year than Kinder Eggs have in 20 years all around the world.

Anyway, my Kinder Egg post was really just meant to hopefully amuse Stone.

I stopped watching the news over a year ago and have not watched TV in over a month. I do love a good debate but too many folks have to be right, and worse make it their mission in life to prove you wrong. This is the only section (other than the occasional post in a non post count section) where I post. I do find it ironic that, though the rules say no politics or religion threads allowed yet they exist. But mention a banned members book or question the status quo thunder and lightning rain down from Mount Olympus. It's the randomness of it all.

But Balducci, if it saves 1 life, it will be worth it!

Ok, I know you can't detect sarcasm on a msg board but that's how that was meant. That's one of the sayings that annoys me the most.

So you are saying that Tom Jorgenson's comment to me was sarcastic? Hope Tom weighs in to clarify.

It did, thanks!

But it also reminded me of my last trip to the States. I bought a three-pack of old-fashioned (meaning: in the box, not the bag) Cracker Jack. The surprise inside was paper. I immediately came to the conclusion that they were trying to protect themselves from accusations of the toys being a choking hazard. And I thought to myself, since Cracker Jack was invented, how many kids choked on the toys?

While it's true that a single death of a child from choking on a Kinder Surprise egg or a Cracker Jack toy is regretable and tragic, what's really sad is that I think the parents were probably to blame. You know--hand the kid a box of Cracker Jack to shut him up, then go chat with the neighbor for a while, and BANG, the kid is dead. Is that Cracker Jack's fault?

Here is a tragic truth: children drown in swimming pools. It's a horrible, horrible thing. And I don't think the parents are necessarily to blame. But are the swimming pool manufacturers?

We have hate AM radio, we have a hate cable TV channel, and most of the people who post on "not very magical still" are over flowing with even more hate, and they have driven all the lovers away. I'm about to be attacked by all those who hate so much that they have no time to talk about the elephant in the room (thank God for facebook). I think that it is plain for you to see that all the lovers, all of your old friends, all the people who you used to have belly laughs with are long gone. We don't tell jokes here any more here because humor gets in the way of hate.

+10 Thank you

Listen guys. I am on drugs and not sure what day it is and these threads confuse me.

I also don't think Bob Cassidy is hip enough to Will Rogers and I think he, Bob, would. Like his quotes.
